These two evening classes were all about crimping, Wilton Roses and Corneille work. It was great fun and I never thought that small little crimping tools can make me soooooo happy ;D. They just opened up another world of decorating and you can do endless shapes and sizes with it and create wonderful results. Cupcakes were used on the first night as a decorating medium and as you know…cupcakes makes me happy…small, yummy and now with the decorating techniques…stunningly beautiful ;0)…in my opinion, hehehe.
Last night we had a short class on how to do Corneille work and this is not as easy as it seems. It may look like a spaghetti string running all over the cake…but you have to know how to pipe, where to pipe and the pressure on the piping bag needs to be constant and continues. No stopping once you started, no straight lines and no crossovers. I will definitely have to practise this technique!. We then had the opportunity to decorate our cake with the “hows” we were taught.
For me…something simple in silver and white. A little bit of crimping, a little path of Corneille work, a few roses, little bit of silver dust and of course YES, I did swish it up with edible glitter 😀
